You would expect the second screenplay from Diablo Cody after her Oscar-winning debut smash “Juno,” to be another award winning movie, But that doesn’t seem to be the case. I have not personally seen the movie yet, but experts and critics are giving their opinion already and it seems that the movie is a little too quirky and not as sexy as advertised.
one thing that is unanymous is that the actresses and actors chosen for each role were spot on. Fox was a great choice, to play Jennifer, the queen bee who longs to flee the small town of Devil’s Kettle. Here, the “Transformers” star gets to show what she can do when given the chance to speak, and not just run around in a tight denim miniskirt. Seyfried, with her petite frame and big eyes, is a great choice to play an unlikely heroine who finds unexpected inner strength.
The movie, is just not as hot as it could have been. Even the much anticipated lesbian kiss comes out of nowhere without any real lead up to it, as if it were just crammed into the movie for effect.But for all you Megan Fox fans it looks like this movie should prove that Megan Fox really can act.
“Jennifer’s Body,” a 20th Century Fox release, is rated R for sexuality, bloody violence, language and brief drug use. Running time: 100 minutes.
